Degrees of Murder in Nevada
The Nevada criminal justice system defines murder as the unlawful, malicious killing of a human being. Murder crimes can be separated into four types. The degree of murder is determined by the circumstances of the case and the motivation and mindset of the killer.
The four types of murder include:
- First-degree murder: Willful, deliberate, and premeditated killing.
- Felony murder: The same as first-degree murder but it occurs when a person is committing another felony.
- Second-degree murder: Killings that are not premeditated.
